Police: Suspected Robber Shot With Own Gun While Attacking Limo Driver

Police said a suspected robber was shot with his own gun Friday morning during an attack on two limo drivers. It happened at about 3 a.m on South Tryon Street just south of Clanton Road in southwest Charlotte.

Officers said three men with guns attacked the drivers of two limos and threatened to kill them. But as one robber reached for a laptop computer in a limo, the driver grabbed the attacker’s gun and shot him. Police said that man was later dropped off at a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The other two robbers got away. The limo drivers were not hurt.
